Save me from another pizza hut debacle - best delivery pizza?

  • c

Chowhounds - sometimes I just need a great pizza pie and can't be bothered to go and get it... can anyone save me from another awful pizza hut pizza? for delivery - I live in the beaches/leslieville area.

  1. By far the best delivery pizza in Toronto is from Pizza Nova !

      I find Pizza Nova to be one of those love it or hate it things. I know a lot of people who swear Pizza Nova is the greatest thing ever. I know a lot of people who hate it with a passion. I'm one of the latter. I'd rather eat pizza hut than pizza nova.

        I've mention it on the board before. A year later, the prices have risen somewhat but the pizzas are still great.

        So far no off product or late deliveries.

          Add my vote for Pizza Nova! We used to go the Pizza Pizza route but everytime we ordered, there was something wrong or missing. Every time we order from Pizza Nova, everything is fine. My hubby prefers pizza delivery from Pizza Nova, hands down. (My kids love their chicken wings, too).

    2. Valley Pizza on River. They do great pizza. Fresh, tasty toppings and an amazing crust.

          We love Magic Oven - they are at Broadview & Danforth. You can order over the net - their menu is wonderful.

            I've had hit and miss experiences with Magic Oven. I've ordered pizzas and they have arrived undercooked to the point of the crust being practically raw - pale white and limp and tasting just like Wonder Bread.

            When I called to let them know they offered no sort of compensation or even an apology. And this is after I'd been a customer for over 2 years and ordered practically every week.

            If I'm spending $24+ for a pizza I expect it to be at the very least properly cooked and when it's not, I expect the management to own up to it and replace the product.

            I have had nothing but great experiences at Valley Pizza. I actually got the tip about them here on Chowhound and have been ordering from there since.

              Wow, that's too bad. We've ordered 2 or 3 times and have always had good luck, but I'll keep that in mind.

              Magic Oven was good when they first opened about 10 years back, but when I tried them a few years ago they had the worst crust I've ever tasted.

              I didn't originally notice how old this thread is! I just found a link that mentions Magic Oven here:


            3. My favorite pizza delivery is Peters Cajun Creole on Parliament ST. They have really interesting combinations and a wide variety. We've been ordering from them for a few years now and we have always been happy with them. Their phone number is 368-8099. Give them a try.

              1. Pizza Bona is pretty good. They have a variety of "gourmet" toppings, but the key is in their sauce. A large pizza with 3 toppings is about $18, but includes a salad (extra for the spinach, artichoke, and goat chees salad) or some pop.

                Haven't tried Magic Oven's pizza, but their Tandoori Chicken that I tried during the taste of the danforth was very tasty.

                  We recently tried Bona for the first time. (We had been ordering Mamma's, but wanted to try something different.) Best pizza I've had since I moved to the Beach. I'll be sticking with Bona.

                    Count me also as another Pizza Bona converted...Excellent!
